Dr. Garrett Reisman of Los Angeles, 47, a former astronaut with two trips to the International Space Station, on his marital trucks, as told to A.J. Baime.
I met my wife, Simone Francis, at Cal Tech, in 1996. I was giving a tour to prospective graduate students, and she was one of them. I was in it for a free lunch, but I got much more than that. We hit it off.
